Breaking the Waves (1996)
Von Trier's controversial drama stars Emily Watson as the disturbed and deeply religious wife of a paralysed oil worker who starts debasing herself with other men in the belief that doing so will keep him alive.
This stylised and deliberately theatrical drama stars Nicole Kidman as a woman on the run from gangsters in 1930s America who seeks refuge in a small town but soon begins to regret it when they start treating her like a slave.
In this dark and clever meditation on the vanity of human civilisation, a manic depressive woman on the verge of marrying becomes convinced that the world's about to end, and may be on to something. Kirsten Dunst stars.
